    Noddle Credit Report- price comparison search administration review

    Noddle Credit Report- price comparison search administration review 26th Feb 17 at 8:38 AM
    today i have checked my noddle credit report and i was shoked when i saw a credit search on my application by hitachi finances but i don't recall applying for any credit application with any loan company in the last 12 months, but i did search on price comparison on experian-credit matcher to check my eligibility (but that was soft search i think).

    the search appears as follows............

    Company: Hitachi Capital (Uk) Plc
    Hitachi Capital Uk Plc - Price Comparison - Hdd

    Purpose: Administration Review
    Application type : Sole

    The worrying bit for me is that the noodle doesn't differentiation in saying if it is a hard credit search or just a soft credit search and in the summary box it does says that 1 credit search in the last 30 days.
    does any one came across this kind of situation and if some one know if it is just a soft credit search and will not be visible to the lender if i go for a credit application in near future.

    Any help/suggestions really appreciated.

    Do you know why these searches are being performed. Im concerned as it looks like someone is trying to get credit in my name.

    I no longer live or am registered at the address they have searched against and am not on the electrol roll there, nor is my name spelt the way they have spelt it.
